What a day it’s been. I woke up around 9:30 and crawled out of bed. But I got right to work on the computer with doing some research. I tried phoning the EI office many times and gave up. But finally. I got a call this afternoon and got the good news that I am now covered for medical benefits until June. Hopefully, by then, I will have an idea of what my next steps are for this life.
Whether that means going back to work, or going back to school – I will be meeting with an occupational therapist to determine what kind of work might be suitable for me. I’m really hoping to find something that I can do part time from home. That would be ideal. The only issue is that a lot of those jobs either pay minimal wage or don’t offer things like benefits. I’m hoping to get to a place where I can teach music lessons online part time, do a bit of performance on the side – and have a main source of income. That would be the dream.
Well, the ultimate dream is getting picked up by a film producer and providing music for soundtracks. I’d love to be in charge of picking music for tv shows. That would be a cool job to have. I also enjoy creating playlists and curating music from artist submissions.
But that also stresses me out. There’s so much bad music out there. Really bad music. That I just can’t even respond to some of the submissions.
So, all in all. A good day. I’m back to working out and eating healthy after dipping into the bread. I caved. I couldn’t do the challenge. But I have a stocked up fridge with fruits and vegetables.
Think I will end there. Have you ever been in this situation? If you work from home, what kind of work do you do?
